Labour Party

The National Chairman of Labour Party (LP), Julius Abure, claimed on Saturday some political godfathers in Anambra tried to buy the party’s ticket for the November 6 governorship election in the state with N500 million.

Abure, who disclosed this at the flag-off of the party’s campaign for the election, said the godfathers initially offered him N50 million for the ticket before they increased the amount to N500 million.

He said: “Labour Party’s ticket is not for sale. After our governorship primary of June 11, 2021, some political godfathers/merchants came to my office to offer us N50 million for the ticket. But I angrily drove them out.

“They came again after the official opening of our campaign office some days later and made a higher offer of N500 million for me to sell our ticket to them.

“They have been fighting and tearing at each other, within and amongst members; confusing themselves and each other with court orders after court orders. They have continued to confuse not just themselves but even the electoral umpire, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
